Alaska at Last! Three Alaska Shows Dec. 29-31

There's no place like Nome for the holidays. We didn't book a show in Nome AK, but we'll get close with three Alaska shows in Soldotna (December 29), Anchorage (December 30), and Fairbanks (December 31). Believe it or not, that last one is sponsored by North Pole Christian School!
Of course, last week, we saw this reassuring story published by the Associated Press:
Alaskan Volcano Showing Signs of Erupting
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - A sulfurous steam plume, hundreds of miniature earthquakes and a new swath of ash on snowy Augustine Volcano have scientists looking for a possible eruption in the next few months.
The 4,134-foot volcano hasn't shown such signs since it last erupted in 1986, when ash from a 7-mile-high column drifted over Anchorage, the state's most populous city, and kept flights out of the skies over Cook Inlet.
The good news is that our concert promoters in Alaska didn't seem overly concerned about the news. After playing Alaska (God willing), we will have played all 50 U.S. states, including 103 concerts in the following 34 states in 2005:
Alabama, Alaska, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, North Carolina, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Texas, Washington, Wisconsin, and West Virginia.
